Dorich House Museum Summer Garden Party, 7 June 2019


FRIDAY 7 JUNE 2019 | 6 – 9 pm


Please join us in the grounds of Dorich House Museum for refreshments and live music, celebrating the launch of Kingston Artists Open Studios and the conclusion of Kingston School of Art 2019 Degree Shows and our Studio Residency with artist Hen Coleman.

Studio Residency with Hen Coleman

Hen Coleman  is a graduate of the University of the Creative Arts (2003) with a Masters in Printmaking from the Royal College of Art, London (2006). Her studio practice is based in Oxfordshire, and for the spring and summer of 2019 here with us at Dorich House Museum, Kingston. Her residency, entitled Black Wood, will involve making a new body of drawings, using charcoal which the artist intends to make herself from the wide variety of woods available from the Museum gardens. The work will also include the creation of a series of podcasts, recorded whilst walking with invited collaborators throughout the park and gardens. The resulting landscapes – both visual and aural – will be presented within Dora Gordine’s studio, forming a re-interpretation of the building’s natural surroundings. The Dorich House Museum Studio Residency is generously supported by a private donor.
